About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet some coffee farmers.

ABOUT ME

I have a passion for culture, education, and history.

PHILOSOPHY

I want to learn from everyone.

I want to deconstruct everything and see what's essential even if it ends up being nothing.

I want for my life to provide a good illustration of my beliefs.

To me, philosophy shouldn't be something you espouse so much as something you acknowledge.

Chewed qat and watched the World Cup in a house with twelve soldiers who didn't speak my language.

Took a bus from Lexington to Guatemala

Rode on top of a pickup truck through the desert to a 1,300 year old city.

Got physically lifted onto a camel and subsequently extorted at the pyramids of Giza (still good fun.)
